Ed and Sylvia Christy have been working to plant churches in the Bordeaux region of France since 1990 with Baptist Mid-Missions. They have found many opportunities as well as faced great challenges in establishing a strong community of Christ-followers. Their first church plant now has its own French pastor and building. Currently, the Christys are launching a new church in St. Medard-en-Jalles. Ed and Sylvia have two grown children: Grant, who is an accountant in San Francisco, and Jana, recently married and finishing her degree in France.
Way to Pray: The Christys continue to have good gospel conversations with those around them. They've also had open doors to begin conversations with their own neighbors. Please pray for discernment for them as they interact with those around them.
